Would love to see more pictures. Including caseback and inside of caseback would be key.

Couple of things. First, it isn’t going to be a military watch if it’s gold coloured. Military watches are tool watch, and they will be chrome or steel. Secondly, gold plated Breitling watches have steel backs, not gold plated backs, so my initial though is that your watch is not a genuine Breitling.

I guess if you don’t want people’s opinions, you shouldn’t ask for them.

I also looked through the Breitling reference book for you and I don’t see a watch like yours and I don’t see a case from that era with the twisted lugs like yours has. Maybe a Bteitling dial in a different case? Hard to see the dial properly in your photo.

Breitling have been widely faked since the 1940s.
there is no serial inside the caseback, is there anything outside (you don't need a watchmaker for that)?

Venus cal. 150, early 1940s

let us know the serial; I too do not recognize the case and I should actually know most of them quite well.

Ok thanks buddman 175 do you know what period they were used on Breitlings? I know the moment isnt signed but that doesnt bother me as i found dozens of early ones that aren't as well.
